Long traverse but worth it for a slightly steeper pitch!

Exposure

Exposure

The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs…) but only the consequences of the skier falling.

Low Exposure (E1): Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.

Medium Exposure (E2): As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

High Exposure (E3): In case of a fall, death is highly likely.

Extreme Exposure (E4): In case of a fall, the skier faces certain death.

Medium Exposure (E2)As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

Description

Once you've entered through the gate into Lakeside Bowl you can take the high traverse line into the bowl.

This can be quite exposed depending on snow conditions.

From this traverse you can access several routes including Traverse Pillow, Lakeside Centre, Heartthrob and I.D.

Low. I.D.

Low is the last pitch you can access from the high-traverse into Lakeside Bowl.

The traverse is definitely worth taking on the days after a powder day, as there will often be many fresh turns to be had here! If you're feeling brave you can even air off some of the cliff band! To exit follow the 'Ski Area Boundary' signs all the way down.
